Troglobytes Games and Hound Picked Games have brought back the 1980s today in their rogue-lite shooter, HyperParasite, on Steam Early Access. This announcement comes ahead of the game’s appearance at EGX Rezzed as a part of the Unreal Showcase at booth location QS1G 1-4.
Players will take a most bodacious journey set in the 80s with rad visuals, fast paced action, tight controls, and classic rogue-lite shoot’em up fun. There are 60 different classes all of which players can control and exploit their attributes, weapons, and moves for an outrageous brawl of totally non-stop action.
The game has a comical tone giving it the right amount of fun alongside an incredible synth-wave soundtrack that will make players think they are back in the 1980s.
We’re finally ready to bring everyone kicking and screaming back to the 1980s with HyperParasite on Steam Early Access. It’s now available for $8.99 for everyone to enjoy and give us feedback via the Steam forums and our Discord channel! We’re thrilled to also announce we’ll be at EGX Rezzed where members of the press, influencers and fans of the 80s can get hands on with the HyperParasite.Saverio Caporusso, CEO of Trologbytes Games
Early Access features include a unique twist on the genre where players can jump from one host body to another. There are 3 main levels and 4 sub levels with 10 different mini-bosses and 3 deranged main bosses. Players can play single player or go at it in local co-op. The game features a unique retro 3D-pixelated 1980s aesthetic with procedurally generated levels that will challenge even the most seasoned of players.
